You should see where they put the city water hookup about 2" above the water heater!! So the hose hangs down over the water heater door. They had plenty of room to install the water hook up somewhere else. Next spring I want to put in a larger water heater, the larger water heater should cover up the existing water fill and I can drill a new location for it. Notice the quality sealant job.

Our SV 263 is like that also. The missus claims that seat all of the time.

how did you pull the wire back to the overhead light? I want to do the same thing with the door switches on my rig. I have to go into the camper 4' and turn aft 2' to get to the first light. no fun at night after a few beverages around the fire.

Our bedroom is like that

The light is in the middle of the Queen but no wall switch. You have to climb onto the bed to turn on the light.

I got a battery powered motion detecting night light and mounted it high over the bed on the far wall. I found out I needed to put black masking tape on the lower part of the detector so rolling around did not trigger it.

There is just enough light to enter the BR in the dark and it does not bother either of us if we need to get up at night for any reason (dog or facility).

I took the dinnete appart and removed the fridg (had to replace the fan on the back). The cabinet where the light is has a double bottom so it was easy to go up inside the fridg area and drill into the hollow space of the cabinet, then I just used a snake to pull the wires thru.

Very nice work. I have a few things I would like to do to our new unit but I have a hard time taking it apart being new. Same as our old unit I had a bunch of things I wanted to do and never did due to fear of screwing up the warranty.

This weekend I am removing the rear jacks so that I can install a proper cross brace so that the trailer does not move at the rear. Some some reason Forest River put in a 1" x 1" x 3/32'' thick (.09375") angle to support the back side of the jacks. when you put weight on the jack the angle bends up! So why can't they do it right, who knows. I will post images

I'm doing the same, and replacing the factory stabilizers with scissor jacks.

Also, gonna add Homemade(shop built) Jack Stabilizer Bars similar to the ones in the photo. Click here to see.



Check out what Neil did to stop the shaking.
